  • Descripción


    My name is Simona, I work mainly as a graphic designer and architect, but I also help my husband (Marco) at our insurance refunder office.
    We have 2 boys aged 7 and 11. I should also mention that we have a water turtle (Telemaco) who is also part of the family, living in our garden.

    We are very easy going people. We love meeting people and different cultures.
    We are looking forward to finding a really nice, friendly and polite girl.
    The person will mainly help us to play with our children and at the same time speak with them in English.
    We look for someone interested in being part of our family and help us to improve our kids' English.

    We prefer English mother tongues as we wish for our 2 boys to become bi-lingual or at least very fluent.
    The help required is normally in the afternoon (during the morning they attend school) and/or evening (not so often).
    *** For the next Summer School Holidays we will need help in the morning while both my husband and I are at the office.

    Our house is in a very quiet area, we live in a large flat with 3 bedrooms (one will be for only you!) and a cute garden where we like to have dinners and relaxing time during summer.

    We live in Parma a historical town in North Italy close to many cultural and natural places and attractions. Parma is an elegant city of around 200.000 inhabitants located in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna. Its center is rich in art, parks, and treasures from different ages. Parma is famous for its food, wine flavors and its variable surrounding landscape with small villages full of history and liveliness, medieval castles and picturesque countryside.
    A bike is available to explore the area, (there are bike paths around our house and it takes only about 10 min cycling to arrive in the center of Parma).
